Following the news that former frontman Mikey Chapman had left the band, Mallory Knox have released their first single as a four-piece, ‘Black Holes’. The song sees bassist Sam Douglas explore his talents and step up to vocal duties.
In relation to the lyrics of the song, Douglas says “It’s all too easy in this day and age to post every single thought we have online, and at times too much can be said. Everybody seems to be so quick to have an opinion on something, which they often know nothing about, and I struggle to defend how much negativity is spouted online. We really wanted to make sure that emotion was captured in the recording and our producer Adrian Bushby really brought out the bare bones of the song in the best way. It’s a conscious effort to go back to basics. We really want the listener to be able to hear every part being played and I feel we’ve achieved that.”
Mallory Knox are due to embark on a UK tour in April, as well as festival appearances at Selby Pop Punk Pile-Up and Camden Rocks. Tickets are available to buy at: www.ticketmaster.co.uk/Mallory-Knox-tickets/.
